Middle to high level cloud streaming across the northern and eastern parts of
the continent is associated with an upper level trough and a jetstream. Isolated
thunderstorms can be seen over the northern parts of Western Australia and the
Northern Territory, in the vicinity of surface troughs. 

A cold front with associated cloud band can be seen over the Tasman Sea to the
east of Tasmania. A large pool of cold air is visible behind the cold front
depicted by cellular low clouds which are affecting the southeast parts of the
country. Isolated thunderstorms can also be seen to south of Tasmania in this
pool of cold air.

Onshore wind flow is causing some low cloud about the southwest coast of Western
Australia.

High cloud is streaming across the Pilbara and Gascoyne districts of Western
Australia and is associated with a jetstream.
